Little Blue Hill, 12/9/12

Late Fall in New England. Great, convenient short hike – just 45 minutes up and down. But great views off both sides of the summit, and the gift of a stone bench with views north -with this memorial on the back, in tribute to Augustus Hemenway, 1853 – 1931 “He lived on this land. He loved these woods.”

“Exempt from public haunt

Finds tongues in trees

Books in the running brooks

Sermons in stones

and good in every thing.”

The open rocky summit looks up at Great Blue Hill across 138. Park in the Park&Ride lot on Rte 138 at Rte 128/I93 – next to Suffolk Grille/Dunkies in Canton, MA (used to be Howard Johnson’s). Trail starts at the back end of the parking lot.
